Sandy Shores Lenten Rose of the HONEYMOON™ Series -
The Honeymoon Series Hellebores are single flowered selections that are heavy bloomers in beautiful rich colors. The Sandy Shores Helleborus offers 2 to 3 inch single soft apricot flowers with solid pink backs. Beginning late winter to early spring, Sandy Shores blooms for 6 weeks or more. Great for naturalizing in wooded areas. Pair with the Spanish Flare Helleborus also from the Honeymoon™ Series.
Hellebores bloom when few other garden plants are during the cold of early spring. Being deer and rabbit resistant keep them from most plant damage that happens during that time. Perfect for woodland gardens, too.
As with all Hellebores, you will want to plant the Helleborus Sandy Shores where they can grow and live for many years. Hellebores resent being disturbed. In late winter, clip all of the old evergreen growth (leave new growth) just before new buds emerge so the focus will be on the colorful flowers. Hellebores are harmful if eaten and can cause skin irritations so be sure to wear gloves and protective clothing when planting and removing old foliage.
Sandy Shores Helleborus is grown in a one gallon container. Orders shipping to CA or AZ addresses may be bare rooted before being prepped for shipping.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.
Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.
This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
